Dzień dobry! 💛 Ostatnio w moje ręce wpadły kosmetyki do makijażu od @farmasi_poland, nigdy nie miałam z nimi styczności, a bardzo lubię nowości, także ucieszyłam się, że mogę je dla Was przetestować. 💛 Baza pod makijaż sprawdza mi się dobrze, wygładza moją twarz, jest transparentna i ma przyjemną konsystencję. 💛 Podkład, (który mam w odcieniu 01 vanilla) niestety okazał się być dla mnie za ciemny, ale na buzi wygląda super! Tusz fajnie wydłuża i rozdziela rzęsy, a także nadaje im objętości, całkiem w porządku produkt! 💛 A Wy na co najbardziej zwracacie uwagę podczas makijażu? Co jest Waszym #musthave? 💛 U mnie to brwi i rzęski. 💛👀 _____________________________________________________________ #farmasi #farmasipolska #farmasipoland #kosmetyki #cosmetics #kosmetykidomakijażu #baza #tuszdorzęs #podkład #foundation #mascara #makeupbase #makeup #makeupcosmetics #cosmeticslover #beauty #makijaż #makeuplover #poland #instamakeup #makeupaddict #skincare #lashes #instagood #eyeshadow #uroda #eyes

Easy to use

By simply pressing the sponge against your skin, you can evenly spread the foundation or BB cream. They offer more control and you don’t need to put in a lot of effort.

Natural look

With a brush, you just cannot get a dewy finish. It is very difficult to spread the foundation and concealer uniformly over the skin. However, with a makeup sponge, you can apply them smoothly and get a very flawless natural look.

Skin safety

Applying foundation with a sponge doesn’t involve a lot of pulling or pushing into the skin. Also, a sponge is soft. This ensures that there’s little to no skin damage because of stretching and pressing.

Variety of shapes and sizes

Makeup sponges are available in the market in numerous shapes and sizes. Some are rectangular, some are round, and some come with round edges while some are flat. Various brands have also come up with mini makeup sponges. This means that you can get around all the crannies and nooks of your face.
